    Default Pain in lower left side

    Has anyone had bad pain on the lower left side in your belly? It feels like a horrid burning sensation? My dr said it is pretty normal because of all the stitches on the inside. I was just wondering how long it lasted if any of you have had this?

    Is the pain constant or intermittent. Constant would concern me but intermittent that is aggravated by movement I would think more of stretching from incisions. I am always concerned for left lower quadrant pain for diverticulitis or ovarian torsion, both of which are constant building pain.

    My surgeon's assistant said left side pain will last about a month. I'm in my 4th week and still having pain but it has eased up over time. Some have said their pain lasted about six weeks.

    Yes, I had lower left side pain as well. I am now 3 weeks post-op and that pain is totally gone. But out of all the stitch areas that one hurt the longest.

    I had pain in my lower left side, too. I am 1 month out today, and for the most part it is gone, but sometimes if I overdo it or turn the wrong way I still definitely feel it. It is not sharp or severe, but more of an annoyance at this point than anything.

    I also had it. If I would sit at this computer to long I would really feel it. I am one month out today and it is completely gone.

    Yes, I had it too, most likely you twinged something in there, or it could be atelectasis, mine lasted for probably 4 weeks, so I am guessing mine was the atelectasis, and it just needed to re-inflate that portion
